Bottom-up Call for Case Study Descriptions

To ensure an additional opportunity for detailed input on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) from industry, a bottom-up call for case study descriptions of good practice in RRI in industry was launched in April 2014. The deadline for submission of abstracts was June 30, 2014. In total twelve applications were received from eight countries, namely the UK, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, the U.S.A., South Africa, France and Cyprus. As planned, five case studies were funded from successful applicants in a two-stage selection process.
